Cree/Métis hip-hop artist Joey Stylez premieres new track, "Pride of Lions". Listen below.
Joey Stylez has been quietly transforming his style with each album in his catalogue.
"Pride of Lions", the lead single from his new EP, offers up his latest incarnation: an adept blend of club-oriented 'Aboriginal trap' music, swagger-filled hip-hop, and a slick pop hook, courtesy of Dragonette's Martina Sorbara.

Cop this new single entitled My Eyes Are On You from Fort Erie Native KodeRed.
You don't need to listen to this song for too long before you think to yourself, Why is this not in my headphones?
KodeRed has been laying it down, and you can clearly hear the production that went into tracks like My Eyes Are On You, which was produced by none other than DJ Shub of A Tribe Called Red.
feelin super tierd and still gotta do some writin and recordin...but its all worth it!

From what we can tell, the hard work pays off. Don't miss your chance to download KodeRed's free mixtape, either. Get it while it's fresh.

Santa Fe duo, Ginger and Cannupa, have been on the scene for a number of years. This artistic couple lead a few other lives at least, with Hawaiian artist Ginger Dunnill also performing as DJ and producer under her own name and Shark Siren. Her partner in crime, Cannupa Hanska Luger, (Mandan Hidatsa Arikara) is a solo artist who paints, draws, sculpts, writes poetry - basically whatever he can get his hands on.
They were also part of a Native art collective, The Humble, that worked mostly with live art and installations.
